The sensational spring season is in full bloom here at BUST and waking us up from our long hibernation is none other than Schitt’s Creek’s sunniest star, Annie Murphy, on the cover of our new issue! Inside, we’ve got foxy singer-songwriter Alex Cameron, a supercool chat with Reservation Dogs’ Devery Jacobs, indie-rock icon Chan Marshall of Cat Power, and much more!
And Get Ready For Even More Tasty Tidbits, Including: The marvelous Ms. Mitski; Celebrating the folkloric ferocity of Baba Yaga; A trivia tribute to bell hooks; Dress like the Golden Girls; DIY mosaic tiling; Acres and acres of shrooms; And MUCH More!
On Schitt’s Creek, Annie Murphy coined the phrase “Ew David,” had us singing along to “A Little Bit Alexis,” and earned a well-deserved Emmy. Now she’s back, and her future just keeps getting brighter.
